Taping is the application of an adhesive tape on, for example, a box or other surface.
Packaging tape can be applied manually, with a table dispenser or with a tape machine. A hand-dispenser is often used for manually applying tape. This is simple, mobile and inexpensive. It is easier, however, to work with a table dispenser. The cutting length of the adhesive tape can be set in advance, so that the correct length is always dispensed and automatically cut. This results in a saving of tape and time. With an automatic tape machine it is possible to close thousands of packages per day.
